A Day At The Races an alternative view of the last stage of the Tour of Britain.

To some the glamorous cash heavy sport of pro cycling is about Yellow or Green jerseys, bikes that cost the cash equivalent  of a small mortgage  and wagon trains of expensive team cars to panda to the every need of the riders, a bit like having your mom along on a date. Today as the saints of the sport sipped on their energy drinks in hotel size luxury buses that carry them  between stages like rock stars on tour, the disciples took to the course for their fifteen minuets of fame.

Some race for a yellow jersey others for the coveted yellow bib


In for the cash or racing for pennies
